Global Mapper Scripts
« on: September 28, 2009, 07:16:48 AM »
If GM is a frequently used mapping tool by users of this site, is there a central repository for GM scripts? 

GM 10 and 11 scripting languages support an "Assign_Type" command that lets you translate object types between datasets.  For example, I wrote a script that automatically assigns NHD types of waterbodies and waterways to "perennial" or "intermittent" waterbody and waterway categories in GM.  I'd be happy to share if anyone could use it.

You can attach your script to your post and we will be happy to provide feedback on it.

To use this create a Global Mapper Package File containing all the subbasins in the region of interest.  Running the script on that file permits some global settings for names and elevations.
